Curing Liver Cancer
Physicians are always to be as minimally invasive as possible when treating any cancer, thinks Dr. Ignacio Rua, Chief of Vascular Surgery with Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute.
He explains the procedure performed to Cristina, a liver cancer survivor. “We grow the uninvolved part of the heart liver that did not have tumor. We had to grow that part so then we could go in and safely remove almost 80% of her liver," he says.
